Depends what you want them for.
What type of quail is best?
Also depends on what you want them for.
Can they share a pen with other fowl? (I have ducks, chickens, junglefowl, swans (I wouldn't put them with my swans) , geese, and loons.
Probably best not to. Contact with chickens has been known to kill them, though some people do have them interact with no issues.
What do they eat?
Min 24% game bird ration, or 28% turkey starter (non-medicated), though some people feed them as low as 18%
Can you get more then one type of quail in a flock?
Again, it depends on what you want. Bobwhites and TN reds don't get along well with others and there may be others that don't play nice either.
Is 6 quail enough for a flock?
What is the male to female ratio?
Anywhere from 3:1 to 6:1.
